This Jon Dorenbos show is no illusion

Jon Dorenbos has quite the story.

He played 11 seasons with the Eagles.

He discovered his passion for magic through tragedy.

And, most recently, he underwent emergency heart surgery last September.

Dorenbos will share about all that and more through an interactive show at SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia on March 16.

The long snapper certainly knows how to put on a show after starring on NBC's America's Got Talent in 2016, so this shouldn't disappoint.

Plus, for Eagles fans, it'll be a nice chance to see one of their beloved former players up close and one last time.

You can read more about the event and ticket information right here.

Bryzgalov picks great seat at Flyers game

If you ever need a good laugh, just scroll through Ilya Bryzgalov's Twitter account.

It is wildly entertaining.

The former Flyers goalie is a gem among the Twittersphere, just as much as he was during an in-person interview.

He's also shown that he likes to take in a Flyers game from time to time, sitting among the fans at the Wells Fargo Center.

Thursday night looks like it was one of those times and, remarkably, it appears Bryzgalov sat directly behind one of his fans. He tweeted out this photo to prove it.

Hopefully this spectator knew the legend Bryzgalov was enjoying the game right behind him. You'd think the two enjoyed a laugh and Bryzgalov provided a signature.

On a complete side note, check out Bryzgalov's last two tweets prior to Thursday night.

Valid question:

Great party:

Philly athletes you should follow on Instagram


Philly athletes you should follow on Instagram

You're already following Joel EmbiidCarson Wentz, and Claude Giroux. You've probably threw Rhys Hoskins a follow last fall too.

As we dive into 2018 with Instagram only growing more popular, we wanted to highlight a few Philly athletes fans will want to follow.

Behind the mask
There are a handful of Eagles worth following. You're probably already following Torrey Smith and the other big accounts. But how about Trey Burton (@treyburton8)?

Burton is a great story on the field — an undrafted free agent who's carved out a nice role as the third-string tight end. And his Instagram shows he's a down-to-earth dude off it.

On the rise
With the Phils trading Freddy Galvis to San Diego this winter, J.P. Crawford (@jp_crawford) enters 2018 as the team's starting shortstop. Here he is trusting the process with Hoskins.

For the city!! Love the new @sixers jerseys that just released today! #brotherlylove

Under the radar
Phantoms center Mike Vecchione (@mvecc8) isn't on the Flyers just yet, but the former Hobey Baker finalist is a worthy follow.

Old friend
We love Chase Utley here, and while Utley doesn't post that often, he makes it count when he does. Last weekend, he chronicled his trip to Disney Land with his son.

Animal accounts
Who doesn't love dogs? Two of the city's star players have Instagram accounts dedicated to their four-legged friends.

There's Wentz's pup Henley (@qb11_henley), and Harvey and Charlie Giroux (@harvandcharlie).

And, of course, don't forget to give us a follow — @nbcsphilly.
